Good remark is that - the management plays a good role in building a student personally. Each of the students has personal mentor assigned who looks after the growth of the students. We have brainstorming session which are helpful. Also, there is a counselor available for students for mental stability. Bad remarks - they should expand their accomodations services and rooms are less and its on first on come basis.

Placements drive occur two times a year, first is for the First years for summer placements that is called internships and the second drive for the executive placements that is for the final years for a job.

Like - Viacom18, Zee, Star TV, Fashion Tv, Turner Media, Bytedance, IAMAI, Amazon, HDFC bank, Estee Lauder, Morgan Stanley, GEP, Reliance Retail, Indian Oil and many more. Our institute have a central placements. Which means, irrespective of the streams one is studying in, he or she can apply to any companies coming for placements. That means, I, being a media student can also apply for the HDFC bank, if the roles suits me or I want to. Percentage of students placed every year is 98%. General step follow to apply for a company is that you have to apply for the company on the college portal, then you have to submit the resume on the portal itself, after shortlisted by the company you have to appear for the GD/Interviews rounds, and so forth. The institute prepares the students beforehand. This preparations include the AC/DC process, that is assessment centre and development center where students on trained on their capabilities. Apart from that regular mock interviews and Mock GDs are scheduled.
I wanted to pursue management in media and Entertainment. For this stream, there are not many colleges in India. Welingkar being a good one in this stream, I had applied for it. So there are basically two mediums for admission - 1) Through your CAT/XAT/CMAT/ATMA, with different cutoffs. Followed by around of GD and Interview. 2) It takes admissions through certificates. This means if you have certificates of high level, in any stream, Welingkar can offer you a chance to go directly to the GD and Interview round. However, one should have taken any of the above exams.
No, I have not opted for hostel. There is boys hostel, and for girls the hostel is in renovation. Until then, they have provided different flats and girls usually share in 2/3/4 seatings. The flats are under supervision of college administration.

COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
The college offers it's course on a trimester basis. Each trimester we have different number of subjects. The subject criterion is divided into 60 marks for external and 40 marks for internal which is further divided into 20 marks for presentation and 20 marks for written test. The pedagogy include theoritical knowledge as well as practical knowledge, depending on subject to subject. In some subject, where industry exposure is necessary, the institute take the students on immersions, industrial visits etc. In the first month of admission, during the foundation, immersions happen which are mandatory to attend. This lays a better outlook for a student to understand industry from day one only. Apart from that, visits keep on happening whenever required according to the subjects.
